98.5 The Sports Hub, the flagship station of the New England Patriots and Boston Bruins, first hit the air-waves on August 13, 2009 and was Boston's first FM all-sports station, and it competes directly with WEEI, which for years broadcast on 850 AM but made the switch to FM last week and now broadcasts on 93.7 FM.
The Marconi Award is presented by the National Association of Broadcasters to the best radio stations and hosts in the country. It is named after Guglielmo Marconi, who is credited as being the father of long distance radio transmission.
